By the Tide divided box of notecards

Again inspired by Monica’s retreat projects, I attempted something quite ambitious for me – a divided box with an acetate sleeve. I really don’t get on with acetate but I decided to go for it, even though I only had one piece left. The other challenge was to come up with my own measurements, as I wanted to include some notecards and a pen. The remaining section was really only big enough for some small tags, so that’s what I made.

Wish I’d used a different piece of DSP for the sleeve as I could have used this on the back of my journal. Never mind, I have a friend coming to the rescue.
I’m not going to give you the dimensions for the box as I don’t have them to hand and have loads to do today to prepare for the events of tomorrow. I have a team meeting in the morning, followed by my Father’s Day class in the afternoon. This evening it’s my daughter’s prom as she leaves school today. Can’t quite believe this, it’s all a bit scary and I’m feeling very old, so let’s skip straight to the recipe:

  1. Wow fantastic! & that fish really jumps off the page (if fish jumping is the correct analogy to use). The colours really do bring the set to life.

  2. Wow! That project is fab-u-lous!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
